Devastating tornado leaves house untouched

Remarkable drone footage recorded in Georgia shows one unscathed house surrounded by total devastation.
Matt Gillespie had been visiting his parents on March 4th when he decided to use a drone to record the aftermath of a tornado that had hit the towns of Ellersie and Waverly Hall.

The extreme wind had left a trail of destruction throughout the area with trees uprooted, houses destroyed and debris left strewn across the ground.

Perhaps the most surprising thing of all however was a single house that had somehow managed to remain untouched despite all the trees surrounding it being felled by the tornado.

"The residents of the house are OK," said Gillespie. "I don't know how many houses in total were messed up, but on that road there were at least eight that were affected."
"My parents experienced the tornadoes - my dad is in the military and he said he'd never been that scared in his life."

The owner of the intact house later posted on YouTube to confirm that they were all right.

"The community really pulled together to get our long driveway cleared so we were not trapped in," they wrote. "A lot of hard work and people were just pulling over to help out."

The house in question can be seen in the video below from 3:09s.

This really is bizzarre. What are the physics behind this ?  How can trees near to the house be flattened - all around it - but the house not be touched ?

Maybe the tornado formed over the house?

The main structure was solid , but at closer range, it's probably quite messed up...

In September of 1979, I lived through a direct strike from a Category 3 hurricane in Mobile, Alabama. It trashed the city but we only had a single storm death DURING the storm. Down the street from the house I was sheltered in, a guy owned a '78 Corvette. Beautiful, new car. He had it under an open cover, just 4 posts and a roof. The next morning, that roof was laying flat on the ground and we assumed his beautiful car was crushed. Turned out that the roof lifted straight up and fell back down atop the car like a snug-fitting cover that kept it from getting as much as a scratch!
